Steam Powered Generator
Not new inventions but new ways of doing things for modern living.
Steam Powered Generator designed to run off flammable Gas (Propane or even swamp gas or pig gas), liquid fuel, solid fuel (wood coal) or trash. Running a steam engine on trash is a great idea for me. I live in a rural area and don’t get trash service. We just burn it. But if we could burn it and produce power for the house or portable power. I would love to build a trailer setup that you could take to a job sight and run off wood or construction trash and still produce enough power to run the job site just like a large diesel generator. Anyone who works in the woods or on remote job sites will tell you it would be nice to have heat, power and the ability to have steam powered cleaner is not bad. In my case I just wanted to power my house with it. Wood is cheaper than gasoline here and if the power goes out it would be nice to have a good backup source I could run for days without major expense. I would also love to capture some low temperature steam to heat the house. The waste product of a steam engine will make a house nice and toasty.
With todays tech it would be possible to build a burner that could support burning many types of fuel cleanly and effectively along with added benefit of safety and lower emissions than just having a barrel or burn pile to burn up construction trash or debris. Of course this would not be practical in the city or other areas where fuel is not easy to come by. If you got to pay full price the gasoline generator is still way cheaper and easy to run. Toss in todays lawyers and peoples inability to operate even the simplest device it is an invention that will never be built but could truly be useful to a few of us out here.
